“THE OILY OCTOPUS” by Lynne Higgs

Leave a comment





An octopus observed some ooze upon the ocean.

‘Is it olive oil or toxic poison potion?

He asked a nearby oyster who looked a little off.

She was a tad opaque and she then began to cough.


‘What is this oily ooze – its odourous and odd?’

The octopus opined to a nearby orange cod.

‘It’s all atop the ocean tide.’ The cod replied offended.

If this continues on, our organic lives have ended.
